Awfulizing Comes Naturally

We are pros at imagining the worst possible scenario.

It’s okay to prepare for hardships and emergencies. In fact it’s something we should all do, it’d be foolish not to. But it becomes detrimental when we approach each and every obstacle, challenge, and risk as if you will fail. But that seems to be most people’s nature, to “awfulize” things, to be negative.

When we are presented with something that could be a risk, most people jump at what could be the worst that could happen. What if I don’t have enough money? What if they don’t like me? What if I can’t do it?

What if…
What if…
What if…

Well, what if it turns out to be the best thing that ever happened? What if your every need is taken care of? What if you succeed beyond your wildest dreams?

Just once, challenge yourself to imagine the best case scenario. Go into a situation thinking on how you will thrive instead of how you can survive.
